Veronica F. Johnson @vfieldsjohnson

@leonicka Hi @leonicka thank you for taking questions! What level of editing would you recommend for an aspiring author's manuscript before submitting to an agent? Copy, Line, Developmental or all 3?

All of the above! Send the agent the best draft you can. You don’t want to be rejected for something you knew you had to fix. Don’t start querying if you’re still circulating the draft for feedback. #askagent

I LOVE this Q and am running a workshop on it June 12.
Short A: Self-publishing is amazing if Self has the skills and resources to fill the function of a publisher.

floridawritingworkshops.com/schedule-2018-… twitter.com/trent_lewin/st…

Functions of publisher incl:
-prepare product for market (incl editing, typesetting, cover design)
-produce product (incl print and bind)
-market product (incl identify target audience and convert them to readers)
-distribute product (incl warehouse, ship, fulfillment)

@leonicka Hi Leonicka, if a PB query has been submitted to an agent, but later the MS undergoes a significant revision, is it a good (or bad) idea to follow-up with the agent to ask if they would like to see the revised MS?

Great Q! If I haven’t responded to the query yet, it’s fine for writers to nudge me letting me know they have a revised version. I wouldn’t want to reject them based on something they’ve already fixed. #askagent

Sarah M. Chen @sarahmchen

@UweStenderPhD If I query with a YA but then you request pages and read it and say it's adult, is that an automatic pass because I didn't categorize it correctly?
Replying to @sarahmchen

No, not if I love the book. THOUGH, it could be problematic. If I love BOTH chamomile tea and raspberry tea, and I ordered chamomile, but you give me raspberry, I may still not like it for THAT singular reason.

Dr. Sara Kapadia @sarakapadia

@UweStenderPhD #askagent
Is it advisable to query agents who have passed on a full with a different book?
Replying to @sarakapadia

Sure. I never reject the author, just the book. I have several clients whose first two or three queries I rejected, but loved the newest one.

My alignment is Chaotic Guilt @Beckswrites4

@UweStenderPhD How much time should pass before I consider no answer to *be* a pass? This is for an initial query which fits MSWL.

(I get my second shot next Friday!🧡)
Replying to @Beckswrites4

I will always respond, unless I have an OOO message <as currently> that defines when I respond. Thus, if this refers to me, one or the other is in play. With other agents, I don't really know. I would write them off after 6 weeks, personally.

Shanice | Wakanda Forever @twixsftbl

@UweStenderPhD So I wonder... when you rep someone what’s the process for film/tv rights to be sold?
Replying to @twixsftbl

I handle the film rights, and depending on the project, and circumstances, I sometimes work with co-agents, but on a non exclusive basis.
